Just to say that you've been to a coastal dune lake is pretty cool. My 6 year old quickly caught a largemouth bass about 1' long... right after he had caught a blue crab. That doesn't happen in many places on this earth! Right across the parking lot and dunes, my husband reels in a red drum (more than a... More

Hidden gem between Panama city beach and Destin. No hotels no crowds just sugar sand and emerald water.

We biked along 30A and stopped at as many beaches we could along the way. This beach was very pretty and had many dunes. It is also walking distance to Red Bar.

This is a wonderful park. It doesn't get very crowded. The only thing I find annoying is that a lot of professional photographers use the beach to take pictures of families. So all over the beach they are set up to photograph families. It's not horrible, or else I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating. The beach is beautiful... More

One of the most beautiful beaches in the country. They have all types of campsites plus a large coastal dune lake. The hiking trails are great and very unique. Plenty of great restaurants in the area.

This park only has a few campsites, so book far in advance if you can. I was only able to get one night here, but it was worth it! It's a beautiful, secluded camping area. I felt somewhat 'alone' out there, even though I had campers all around me. It was nice and quiet, and the area inside the tent... More

As a family it is important for us to be in nature. Grayton State Park has an Amazing beach and easy bike trails. We do our best to avoid the busy beach spots and find this to be the ideal sanctuary for us. We will be back again!

There's a reason why many of the local professional photographers use this beach for their background setting for family, wedding, couples photos. The beach is nearly pristine, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, not crowded at all (unless maybe spring break?? as Ive read in other reviews). If you're looking for a wide, flat and groomed beach then stick to the hotel... More
